Jumbo fun activity with 40 words for students to find. Each word is a character name, a location or key word from the novel Holes by Louis Sachar. Students will enjoy it. It encourages them to learn how to spell important names/places/vocabulary.
In addition to finding words in the grid, students are asked to write one sentence about each word, and its importance in the plot of the novel. This helps reinforce their knowledge of the novel.
This is the type of activity that could be used as a homework assignment or as class work on an occasion when you need a filler, and have nothing prepared.
The solution is given on the second page.
